The UK’s Angela Garrod starts our week with these tidy bauhaus-like designs. The hollow lentil beads are covered with geometric designs that combine gold and pearl mica polymer with black contrasts.

She admits that the designs presented complex and challenging problems. Angela was named Voila’s Polymerista of the Year in the Proficient Category for 2011. She has started teaching her techniques and is scheduled at the UK’s Polymer Pamper Play weekend in April 2013.

                Hello everybody,This is monday evening and I have just discovered my necklace was featured today!! Thank you so much Cynthia!! Great honour again. Nobody had mentioned this on Flickr but I got a little suspicious of all the extra activity so here I am to have a look. And OH what a surprise!! I am so thrilled so many of you like this necklace. Many challenges had to be overcome and I also discovered muscles I thought I never had during my final finishing of the piece. Thanks again everybody!! Angela xxx

                  Wow!!!! Your creation hits the sweet spot for me. The design, energy, composition and craftsmanship all-together have led to a truly unique piece. This holds for both pieces, the first more organic one you posted here as well http://www.flickr.com/photos/claynine/7616533764/in/photostream .
                  Stunningly wow – congratulations!

                    When I met Angela at last year’s PPP and saw her work, I thought, “Wow, she’s one of our rising stars”, but looking at that necklace, her star has already risen and is now shining brightly above! So well done, Angela, keep pushing! xx

                    • reply Angela ,

                      Thank you so much Melanie!! Fantastic compliment coming from you. You from all people know what work and research is involved in my pieces. Love, Angela xx
